Usability Suggestions

Hi, I was told to put suggestions to the email address if I had any so here you are:

   * I noticed when you watch a movie in Totem the screen saver still
     kicks in every now and then while its playing. (Can't figure out
     how to stop this without loosing the screen saver in other
     circumstances actually)
   * Totem is the default player for movies and music (I think its a
     good choice I like it) but its called "Movie Player". I think
     "Media Player" would be clearer.
   * I think that Firefox and Thunderbird should be the defaults
     instead of Epiphany and Evolution. (No point making new users
     learn extra programs on top of everything else)
   * I think that gtkpod should be installed by default and set as the
     program that starts when you plug your Ipod in because Rhythmbox
     doesn't even allow you to upload music and gtkpod is a lot more
     intuitive. (I think that Rythmbox should be removed as well
     because between Totem and gtkpod its totally unneeded)
   * I think you should get rid of the CD player program as its not
     really needed because the Sound Juicer is very easy to use and
     lets you rip music too.
   * Possibly include some office programs (Openoffice.org maybe)
     because although I don't really need them at the moment I think a
     lot of people would expect them to be installed by default.
   * The "Preferred Applications" thing in the preferences menu only
     lets you choose the default browser, mail client and terminal
     emulator. I expected it to let you select things like default CD
     player, default Ipod program etc (In fact I still haven't figured
     out to set those myself yet)

Not meaning to sound critical by the way I think you have done a great job.

Thanks, David
